Delaware North layoffs, cuts not likely to sit well with Bruins fans


Now, Delaware North - the parent company for both TD Garden and the Bruins - is among the first NHL teams to announce sweeping layoffs and cuts to arena and hockey club employees on their payroll.


It's perhaps easier to say this when it's not your own money, but there is no defending that kind of move with so many Americans headed for financial peril due to the global coronavirus pandemic.


Delaware North released a brief statement addressing the cuts: "As relayed to our associates today, none of these decisions were reached without difficult and painful deliberations.


Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs' net worth has been pinned anywhere from $3-3.75 billion as the head of a Delaware North concessions and service giant that announced company-wide layoffs and reductions on Wednesday as well.


Still, the Jacobs family is going to put themselves in the crosshairs for deserved criticism after the New Jersey Devils/Philadelphia 76ers owners were savaged just a couple of days ago for prompting the same kind of cost-cutting measures.


This kind of stone-cold business move in the face of nationwide financial stress is going to further disenchant the Boston fan base from the people running the show on Causeway Street.
